Lightning Bug Card (Crafty Creations Challenges #295)

Hi everyone :-D 

It´s time for a new challenge at Crafty Creations Challenges.

Our theme for this fortnight is #295 - Chalkboard.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Oak Pond Creations, with an awesome prize for our random winner: 3 digital images.

For this challenge I made this Lightning Bug Card, using our sponsor's lovely digital image 'Lightning Bug Buddies'. I used only one bug for my card.

Image is paper pieced and I used 3 images for this card.

I printed 2 images on a white watercoloring paper and one image on design paper. I colored parts I needed in watercoloring technique, using Stabilo pens (markers), fine brush and water. I learned that from a great video tutorial by Julia Altermann, how to watercolor using inexpensive Stabilo pens. Awesome technique and I love it! :-D

I fussy cut colored parts, colored edges with black Stabilo pen (marker) and glued all pieces over the image printed on design paper.

I used chalk tag, enamel stickers and flair button to embellish my card. 

Card dimensions are 107 mm x 138 mm (4 1/4" x 5 1/2").

List of supplies:
